Jacinta Greer is a PhD Candidate in the Department of Earth Sciences. Her research is focused on understanding the Holocene climate of North Stradbroke Island in south-east Queensland. Specifically, she is investigating the different ways that past climate can be deciphered using chemical signatures of Melaleuca quinquenervia leaves.
Jacinta's research focus is on late Holocene precipitation changes on North Stradbroke Island in south-east Queensland. She studies ENSO dynamics and climate change processes to support evidence for past rainfall changes based on the chemical signatures of leaves preserved in lake sediments.
